SSS’11 Day 5: Me-made Gothic Favourite Pencil Skirt

I have fallen behind on the Self-Stitched September ’11 challenge, but not one for excuses, here’s Day 5!

I promise you I did also wear a head that day.

This skirt I made from fabric I’ve had in my stash since 2004. I’ve been wanting to make it into a pencil skirt since then and this year I finally did! This is the fabric that made me want to learn to sew, and I’ve been holding off using it till I felt confident enough to cut it. It’s now one of my favourites and an office staple. It also features in the SSS’11 themed photo shoot I was able to squeeze in that week!

Stay tuned 🙂

  1. Hi, Love the skirt. I am so partial to skirts as I think they make great fashion stretchers. The fabric is perfect for it. I have two questions–1. Is a pencil skirt with a zipper? 2. Is it lined?

    1. From all the sewing blogs I’ve been reading, it seems standard to have too many skirts! Yes, this is a zippered pencil skirt and no it isn’t lined – I’ve yet to jump that hurdle but I hear it’s very easy 🙂
